A Sample of Rachel Podhoretz Decter Abrams’ Poetry

The Emergency Committee For Israel sure knows how to pick board members.

I don’t have much to add to Daniel’s brilliant take on Rachel Podhoretz Decter Abrams’ “gay problem” but after reading her attempt at witty poetry I’d conclude that her problems might not be limited to an irrational hatred of gay people.

On May 7th, Abrams blogged:

Lion of the Senate, RIP
(a revised version of this first appeared in the Weekly Standard blog)

An amorous sot name of Teddy
Lost control when things got a bit heady.
He went over the side,
Left his ride in the tide,
And his squeeze giving head to an eddy.

    Tasteless, to be sure. The lady is a bad poet as well as a head case. Of course, Teddy wasn’t one-quarter the man Jack was. He should’ve done time for Chappaquidick (or whatever the spelling is). A wretched man who did much, as senator, to harm the Republic.

    MY COMMENT: Rachel Abrams’ “poetry” almost makes Caroline Glick’s “We Con the World” video seem tasteful! These are really sick people.
